The Broncos, in their second season under Vance Joseph, made a late surge toward playoff contention but were eliminated last week because of a home loss to the Browns. Denver is a three-point sportsbook favorite and the over-under for total points scored is 43 in the latest Raiders vs. Broncos odds. Before you make any Raiders vs. Broncos picks and predictions for “Monday Night Football,” check out the results from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, using advanced analytics to produce consistently accurate predictions for sporting events. SportsLine’s proprietary computer model went 176-80 straight up last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Sports Office Pool players in 2016 and ’17. It also performed better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on A-rated picks against the spread last season, and $100 bettors who have followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.
The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018, entering Week 16 on a blistering 16-6 run. For the season, it is now 30-15 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 78-49. And when it comes to all straight-up picks, the model is 147-75 on the season, ranking in the top five on NFLPickWatch.com. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now, the model has zeroed in on Broncos vs. Raiders. We can tell you it’s leaning over, but it has also generated a point-spread selection that hits well over 50 percent of the time. The pick is only available at SportsLine.
The model knows the Broncos come to Oakland lamenting what might have been after they won three straight to join the AFC playoff picture, only to squander the opportunity with consecutive losses to sub-.500 teams. They had a perplexing letdown at San Francisco, and conservative play calling might have contributed to last week’s defeat to upstart Cleveland.
